9 iconic quotes from Pearl Harbor, World War II

The day after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt addressed a joint session of Congress. His speech that day, which summoned a nation to war, would become among the most iconic in American history — particularly Roosevelt’s famous line describing the outrageous attack the prior day:

“Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”

Times of crisis often bring out the best in orators. USA TODAY Network looks back at some other famous quotes from the World War II era — both before and after the “date which will live in infamy.”

So the moment which shall live on in infamy will be noon EST, right?

WELL I’M GONNA BE ON THE COMPUTER HOPEFULLY FROM 9 OR 9:30 TO MOST LIKELY 1 OR 1:30 EST

ANYWHERE FROM 3 ½ HOURS TO 4 ½ HOURS OF INSANITY!

Time will be mostly divided between playing Portal 2 and watching Steven Universe, with maybe some drawings if I can figure out crap!

I do have a Discord server (it kinda went ded oh noes), and I’ll set aside a text+voice channel for people who wanna watch!

I’ll reblog with the server link and my youtube link when I’m pretty much ready to go! This is gonna be great!

Avenge December 7 [Bernard Perlin].

Item From: Records of the Office of War Information. (07/31/1944-09/15/1945).

Bernard Perlin painted this WWII poster to spur the U.S. into action after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor.The imagery of a defiant Navy sailor, a battleship in flames, and the date of December 7th were enough to invoke the ideas behind President Franklin D. Rooselvelt’s message to the American people about the “date which will live in infamy.”

As the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Perlin was born into humble beginnings in Richmond, Virginia in 1918. He later attended the New York School of Design from 1934 to 1936 at the encouragement of one of his High school teachers. He worked in the Graphics Department of the Office of War Information from 1942 to 1943.

History Today - A day which will live in infamy

December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

-Franklin Delano Roosevelt

70 years ago, the Empire of Japan attacked the US naval base at Pearl Harbor in Oahu, Hawaii. It was one of the most successful surprise attacks in history.

When that horrible Sunday morning ended, 2,400 Americans were dead, with 1200 wounded.

Japan, on the other hand, lost maybe 100 men.

In less than two hours, the Navy’s pacific fleet had sustained massive damage, and a sleeping giant had awoken.
